Frances and Rosie are here to help give you the inside track.

Most of the stylishly decorated suites are set around a central, grassed courtyard with a pool and sundeck at one end. Half of them have private courtyards and soothing water features, while the twelve pool suites come with additional private pools and dining areas.

Facilities at Amansara include a library with complimentary Internet access, a spa offering a range of massage and beauty treatments and a roof terrace that makes an ideal spot for early morning yoga sessions or evening drinks. Fine cuisine is served in the circular dining room (which features a walk-in wine cellar where guests may select a bottle) or by the poolside.

Amansara is located just ten minutes from the gateway to the Angkor complex, and the hotel offers a variety of temple tours and cultural walks with English-speaking guides. Visiting scholars are also invited to give informal house talks on subjects such as history, archaeology and architecture.

A Stilted House at Sala Lodges - Cambodia

Sala Lodges

The stilted ‘lodges’ at Sala Lodges have made quite the journey to arrive at their home in the heart of Cambodian countryside, near to Siem Reap. The lodges are traditional Cambodian homes, collected from villages all over the country and transported to Siem Reap, where they have been rebuilt, and upgraded to offer the comfort of a boutique hotel.
